  • Add the shredded Mozzarella cheese, Part-Skim Ricotta cheese and eggs to the mixture and process. Reserve in the refrigerator until needed.

Alfredo Sauce Instructions

  • Melt ½ cup of butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the flour to the sauce pan and stir. Continue stirring and cooking the mixture for 3 minutes.
  • Whisk in the milk and cream and bring to a simmer while stirring.
  • Add cream cheese and seasonings and continue to stir to incorporate the Cream Cheese.
  • Whisk in the shredded Asiago & Parmesan cheese and heat just enough to fully incorporate the cheese.

Chef’s Tips & Suggestions:

  • You can transfer mixture to a blender to achieve a smoother texture.

Sautéed Spinach Instructions

  • Place a sauté pan over high heat and add the olive oil.
  • Just as the oil starts to smoke, add the spinach and garlic.
  • Sauté the mixture until the spinach begins to wilt, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove from pan and cool on a sheet pan. Season with salt.
